[Description of the view from the panorama]
This panorama was unveiled on 26 June 2007 by
Councillor Chris Roberts, Leader of Greenwich Council,
to mark the tenth anniversary of the inscription of
as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The World Heritage Site includes Greenwich Royal Park, the great buildings of the Old Royal Naval College and National Maritime Museum, the Cutty Sark, and the old town centre around the parish church of St Alfege. The early 17th-century Queens House is the last surviving building of the former royal Palace of Greenwich, which stood on the present site of the College (built 1696-1751). This special and remarkably intact historic landscape, and the combination of cultural, maritime and scientific developments that it embodies, make Maritime Greenwich a place of outstanding international significance.
